Information about the Voortrekker Monument

Inaugurated on 16 December 1949, the majestic Voortrekker Monument is situated in the northern part of South Africa in the Pretoria (Tshwane) region in a nature reserve. It is a unique Monument which commemorates the Pioneer history of Southern Africa and the history of the Afrikaner and is situated in a beautiful setting. Today it is the most visited heritage site of its kind in Gauteng and one of the top ten cultural historical visitor attractions in the country.

Cenotaph Hall

What does the Cenotaph symbolize?
The Cenotaph is the symbolic centre point of the Monument. It represents the symbolic resting place of Piet Retief and all those Pioneers who passed away during the Great Trek. Some people mistakenly refer to it as the sarcophagus. A Sarcophagus contains human remains and a cenotaph does not.


What is the significance of the Cupola?
Above the Hall of Heroes is a cupola containing an opening through which the Sun shines.
Every year, on 16 December, the sun shines on the centre of the Cenotaph. This is a symbol of God's blessing of the aspirations of the Pioneers. Since 1952, this day was known as the Day of the Vow and is currently known as the Day of Reconciliation.

In July 2011 The South African Heritage Resources Agency (SAHRA) published a declaration in the State Gazette that the Voortrekker Monument is to become a National Heritage Site.

On 21 March 2012 on Human Rights Day the Minister of Arts and Culture declared the Voortrekker Monument a National Heritage Site. This is the first Afrikaner Monument to be declared as such since 1994. The Monument is now protected by law; however the Monument will not become a State owned Institution but will have conservation status.
